Q. When was the last time a white, American college star, has been a starter on an NBA Champion?
A. John Paxon (1992 Bulls)
Why is it that white guys coming out of college just can’t cut it in the NBA anymore? Look at the amount of great white players over the last 30 years: McHale, Bird, Stockton, West, Walton…but now?
Think of some of the lottery picks!
2006 – Pick 3 Adam Morrison (Charlotte)
Pick 11 J.J. Redick (Orlando)
2004 – Pick 8 Luke Jackson (Cleveland)
Pick 12 Robert Swift (Seattle)
Pick 14 Kris Humphries (Minnesota)
YIKES! What a year!!!
2000 – Pick 7 Chris Mihm (Chicago)
Pick 9 Joel Przybilla (Houston)
It seems white guys, in the NBA, do indeed, finish last..
